Dental 911: Recognizing the Need for Emergency Dental Treatment

“Always consider the options available and the gravity of your situation before phoning any local emergency dental clinic.”

Emergency situations occur all the time in Abbotsford. Medical emergencies are typically treated in emergency room facilities at the hospital, but how about emergency dental treatment?

If you have ever experienced a broken or knocked out tooth, you know that treatment is needed IMMEDIATELY. However, if a patient is not covered by dental insurance or cannot see a dentist, often they resort to taking emergency dental measures. It is important to understand what is an important dental emergency, and what can wait for a few hours or days.

Examples of Not as Serious Dental Emergencies:

  • Lost fillings
  • Chipped tooth
  • Wisdom teeth issues
  • Toothache
  • Root Canal problems
  • Loose Crowns
  • Mouth Ulcers

With these problems, you will be able to wait until a time when you can make an appointment with us at 7 Oaks Laser Dental Centre. Take some painkillers in order to experience temporary relief.

Examples of Serious Dental Emergencies:

  • Severe, unstoppable bleeding
  • Swelling in the face or neck
  • Dislocated, broken or fractured jaw
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Infections

In these cases, emergency dental treatment is required. These injuries may commonly occur in sporting accidents, car crashes, or children and should be taken immediately to an emergency dental facility.

These serious dental emergencies are also the only problems that require a visit to the emergency dental room. Always consider the options available and the gravity of your situation before phoning any local emergency dental clinic.

WHAT IS THE ITERO® ELEMENT™ INTRAORAL SCANNER?

The iTero Element Scanner is a digital impression system that allows your local dentist to forgo messy putty in your mouth. We can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty-based impressions, but it’s faster and can offer a superior clinical endpoint.

NO GOOP. NO GAG. NO WORRIES.

During the impression process, you can breathe or swallow as you normally would. You can even pause during the process if you need to sneeze or just want to ask a question. We can use the scanner for new patient, hygiene and Invisalign appointments.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

  • Eliminates the need to retake impressions.
  • Fast and accurate.
  • No unpleasant taste or smell.
  • See a simulation of your potential post-treatment smile.

BOOK YOUR APPOINTMENT WITH OUR ITERO ELEMENT SCANNER

The iTero element scanner ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Please feel free to ask us any questions about iTero, online or on the phone.

We look forward to seeing you!
